Quick... think of a candy you love and this place will likely have it! Chocolate from around the globe, coupled with local artisan specialties and candy from my childhood. This shop was amazing! Customer service was a bit lacking but the selection was terrific!

We go only for the Calebaut sp chips and bricks, but you have a ton of candy options, very, very large candy store, probably the best selection I've ever seen, but I'm not looking for this, so IDK.

This is not an artisan shop. It is Macy's meets chocolate. I have never seen a store like this. The variety of different chocolates from around the world is unmatched. Prices were reasonable as well. Excellent service in the store.

If it can be made in chocolate in the world you'll find it here. From liquor filled; sugar free, and even wedding chocolates! It's pricey, but well worth it. Staff is attentive, nice, good looking and knowledgeable
